The Children's Ward is now open!

On 4th September 2002 the hospital management in Phalombe organised the official opening ceremony. Nine members of Pro Phalombe Club were able to witness the cutting of the opening ribbon. Representing everyone who supported the project, we could recieve words of praise and thanks. We from the board would like to extend our gratitude to all members, donors and friends, who have contributed to the success of the project.
